The picture above is a young picture of my Grandfather Edward Wallace Bennett. He was born on May 23, 1879 the son of Exodus Bennett and Mary Elizabeth Durling. He married Catherine O'Neill in 1900. She was from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Edward worked at the Dunbarton Mill in Greenwich. Edward and Catherine lived in Mill housing but eventually had a house built on Corliss Aveune in Greenwich. They had five children: Leo b.1902, Mary b. 1904, Harriet b. 1907, William b. 1910 and Elizabeth b. 1915. Edward died on June 1, 1926 and is buried in Greenwich. Thank you, Denise Joy Mullen.
